River clean up stats

As you all know Purple Hayes School of Kayaking and all of its friends take a active role in River clean-ups. I recently received this link from the ACA with stats from last years clean-ups and Stewardships. I would like to share that with everyone. I know as paddles we have a special place for our rivers and with some of this information you can pass on some of it to others so they can realize and learn how to help.
